So busy right now!!
My last real day of work was Thursday .... surprisingly, Im not all that sad about it, at least not right now. I will miss the people, and I know when Im sitting in Georgia looking at the wall I'll miss the fulfillment that my career brought me. But, I suppose, I've done negative in the past and it never worked in my favor! So, Im choosing to be happy (although a bit apprehensive) about the journey that were on. Ill still be part time until the 14th, which is when Ill go in, get my things, collect my last check and say farewell to the working world (at least for the time being - Im sure Ill go back as soon as its a possibility!).
Also, weve been spending maximum time with our friends. Its funny to see how many people we have here that love us (or at least tolerate us for short periods of time ....). For a bit I was wrapped up in one person who thought I was "bad". I admit, it skewed my vision of not just myself, but those around me. This time has shown me that we are surrounded by so much love that anything opposite of that is the exception - not the rule. So goodbye dinners, baby showers, last parties, ect have been the way weve spent our weeks .... and I wouldnt have it any other way. Compared to this place GA is going to be awfully lonely for a bit. But we did it here, and well do it there - it might take some time and some patience, but well get it. Not to mention, everyone is leaving here anyways!
And last (but not least) baby Pinecone seems to be doing well (though I have no real medical basis for this claim). The Doppler monitor has been a lifesaver in between doctors visits - if nothing else, I know we still have a beating heart in there. Everything else, we can work with. Just 22 days until we find out what sort of flavor were brewing in there, so weve been praying to Jesus daily for a boy. I just dont think Im cut out to have a girl. Can you imagine a mini me? Exactly.
